The Helping Hands Committee mission is to establish a network of
parents, grandparents, UBCCC staff & teachers, students,
faculty, staff and friends interested in supporting the mission and
activities of the UBCCC through volunteer and financial support.
The aim is to create a strong sense of community at UBCCC, grow
parent involvement, to serve parents and to help provide valuable
resources for UBCCC and its students.
In addition to our ongoing year-round initiatives, the
Helping Hands Committee (HHC) supports many UBCCC activities
throughout the year such as:
- Promoting the Annual Board of Directors meeting
- Coordinating the Winter Breakfast
- Sponsoring and planning the Fall Staff Development Day Family
- Designing and organizing Teacher Appreciation Week
- Supporting the Annual Friends & Family Fun Walk
The HHC newsletter will be published each semester following the
UBCCC semester calendar. There will be a total of three issues each
academic year beginning with Fall (September), Winter/Spring
(February) and Summer (June).
Through the newsletter, HHC hopes to further connect parents,
teachers and staff ensuring that information are being periodically
disseminated and provide you with a glimpse of what’s to come
for the current semester.
If you are interested to contribute to the newsletter or getting
